These new hunting mechanics are looking great! I also couldn't help but notice how good the wolf model looked, those fur effects look amazing up close.

Awesome work! I had been waiting so long to see when you finally get the biting work and reveal it to us! And I can see that after all that struggle you must have gone through this looks like it was worth it! Just like real wolves, the wolf quest wolves apparently had to gone long way to learn how to hunt elk without it turning out..weird xD

The video made me laugh, gasp in surprise and laugh again! All the laughing for the bugs and gasp of surprise when I saw the actual biting haha! x3 Although I believe that it must have been frustrating at the end to keep on trying to make it work!

Anyway, keep up the great job! I am at least very okay with waiting, I want to see this game as the best you can make it and I know that things like these take time!

After seeing all the trouble you had with the IK rig it's awesome to see it paying off! Good job, I can't wait to play.

Interesting to see how the wolf hangs onto the elk from the front. I would of always assumed that hanging off the neck of the elk, leaving the soft belly of the wolf exposed to the kicks from the elk's front legs, would be dangerous for the wolf. You learn something new everyday!

i am absolutely in awe of these new animations, im especially fond of the run cycle! something about the old one always struck me as kinda "off" for some reason, but i don't get that from this one. keep up the great work ya'll!

Oh my. Wow. XD
The X's were hilarious, but the ending blooper of the running wolves.. it was... morbid...
I'm excited to see new biting/running animations! Will your stamina run out as quickly as it does in 2.7, when you grab onto the elk/bite it in general/any 'large' animal? And wow, it must be annoying to fix a bug and then that path creates a new bug XD
This game is looking awesome, Dave! Good luck with WQ3, Team!

Can't wait! Love how you're taking time to develop and correct the game to be more what real wolves struggle with in their day-to-day. I personally love the accurate approach.
So ready for this to come out but take as much time as you need!
Much love WQ game developers!

Lol so funny. One concern I would like the wolf team to keep in mind is a continuing problem at the moment. Takes for ever to kill the elk, and by the time you do, your pups die....Well that was pointless. Just something to keep in mind. I love the realism of this, and the new ways to bite and bring down the elk, but don't make it to hard to catch, understand that realism is awesome but if it makes the game to unbearably hard to play, it frustrates the players. I love the fact that we can bite the neck and legs like a real wolf though! XD

Having different difficulty settings for the game should mostly help to curb this problem. I imagine elk will be less challenging on the lower settings, and more carcasses will be available.

I'd definitely recommending hunting and having multiple carcasses at the ready prior to having your pups in the game. It helps a lot and removes the frustration of having to hunt without worrying about your pups starving :)

As somebody who has had first-hand experience animating with and building IK systems, I can tell you I understand your pain and admire your persistence in getting it right. If it were me doing this, I'd have given it up for lost way before ever seeing what the final product would look like XD So, good on you for making it this far and I hope it doesn't give you too much trouble as you work to fine-tune it XD
